The Boys Are Back!

Looks like from the recap of the game (yes, without cable I am unable to watch the playoffs - BUMMER, guess we'll just have to hit up restaurants with TVs on the weekends) THE BOYS ARE BACK!!

Wallace, Pistons build big lead, put down Sixers to even series

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- The Detroit Pistons looked a lot like the team that reached the last five Eastern Conference finals.

Rasheed Wallace scored 11 of his 16 points in the first quarter and had plenty of help at both ends of the court in a 105-88 series-evening victory over the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 2 on Wednesday night.

"They were clicking everywhere," Philadelphia's Andre Iguodala said. "Those are the Detroit Pistons that we expect to see."

The Sixers took advantage of Detroit's lackluster focus in the first-round opener, rallying from a 15-point deficit in the third quarter for a 90-86 win.

"We were disappointed, upset and mad about what happened," Pistons coach Flip Saunders said. "Our players responded."

Wallace led the way with another good game against his hometown Sixers.

Unlike the series opener, a few Detroit starters helped him out.

Wallace was one of four Pistons scoring in double figures as they took a 17-point halftime lead, while the 76ers had only Andre Miller, who scored 11 of his 14 points in the first half.
